Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday afternoon made four suggestions to the PM to speed up vaccination. Delhi is currently on “paused the roll-out” for the third phase vaccination due to shortage.  Kejriwal, concerned about the predicted third wave said, to prevent a major damage speeding up vaccination is a national necessity now.

"For June, our share has been reduced further to eight lakh doses, according to a letter we have received (from the centre)... So far, we have administered 50 lakh doses. We need at least 2.5 crore total vaccines," kejriwal said, pointing that Delhi required 80lakh doses per month, but it received only 16lakh doses in the month of May.

The AAP supremo said if 8 lakh doses are given per month it will take 30 months to vaccinate the entire state. "It's hard to imagine how many more Covid-19 waves will hit the city by then and how many more lives will be lost," he briefed.

The four suggestions he made this after noon,  "All vaccine makers in India, within 24 hours, should be ordered to manufacture Bharat Biotech's Covaxin to ramp up stocks."

Putting a special stress on the foreign vaccine makers to ship their vaccine within 24 hrs,  "The centre should speak to international vaccine manufacturers, buy from them and distribute to states. States and union territories are fighting with each other,"

The CM added saying some countries "have stocked more vaccines than they need, and the centre should request these nations to give the excess to India," 

In his final suggestion he said that international vaccine makers should be permitted to manufacture vaccines in India.
